With more and more businesses researching and booking their venues online, VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit has today (23 February 2010) unveiled a new website, conventionscotland.com to complement the recently launched brochure, MeetScotland. Together, these two provide conference and event planners with comprehensive information and easier access to Scotland’s superb and diverse conferencing portfolio.
Announced at this year’s Confex, the website and brochure are being showcased to 10,000 potential buyers alongside some of Scotland’s top conferencing and meetings businesses who are exhibiting on the stand.
Speaking about the website, VisitScotland’s head of business tourism, Caroline Packman comments: ‘The new website is totally user friendly and gives buyers the chance to find what they need both quickly and easily. With everything from ideas on how to extend a business trip to Scotland, to an interactive venue search, we are making it even easier for delegates to find Scotland at their fingertips. The use of stunning photography in both our new brochure and on the website paints a vision of what it is like to hold an event in Scotland, as well as demonstrating our sheer quality of offering - event planners will be spoilt for choice. “
